Rant

Bad Apple

Apple have told me, in polite and carefully chosen words, that they are not responsible for people who get bitten by their abrupt price changes.

I have replied, in likewise polite and carefully chosen words, that I do not find this response entirely satisfactory.

We'll see.

1 You're going to be an unusual guy if you did get any results. That's pretty much been the company's standard deal for decades, ever since my Performa was sold the next day for half price. Now that I think about it, I'm still mad that the $1200 TI-99/4A sold for $50 about two weeks after I bought it....

2 It's not just Apple, either. You'd be unusual if you got results from ANY retailer, unless they have a "price guarantee" policy.

3 And we don't get to see this carefully worded reply??? I for one am on tetherhooks (what is the origin of that phrase?)

4 Most retail outlets offer some kind of price guarantee, though -- especially if it's only been two weeks. Or else you can take it back, get a refund at your original price, then buy it again at the lower price. Another reason not to buy online, I guess.

5 I bought my Color Computer III the week it came out. I walked back into the same Radio Shack two weeks later for some components for an unrelated project, and the salesman told me I had a refund coming because the price had dropped. That thing was actually one heck of a computer in its day, and OS/9 was the best operating system on the market up till then, but the company, and even more so the stores, just pissed its value away.

7 Uh oh. He complained about Apple and hasn't been seen since. We can put two and two together.
